New event: Oil Crisis of 1970s; expanded effects
« on: February 16, 2019, 10:29:55 AM »
Sami,

In addition to the economics of the oil crisis (high oil), you can now tie this event to other effects. Since were able to data check all airports, I am finding that several airports were closed down due to the downward pressure that high oil cost brought upon.

So moving forward, you can now remake the event too include high oil costs, reduction of pax and airport closures. Something like:

Oil Crisis of 1970s:

Due to growing geopolitics issues, oil as a commodity is being heavily effected. The effects of this event are expected to drag on for years, analyst at major firms fear.
Some effects to expect are:

Unpredictable spikes in oil
Lower Global passenger travel
Closure of airports



This event can become something that rivals 9/11 in terms of effecting the airline industry.

Fuel prices tripling already bad enough effect but a reduction in pax on top of this makes for worse than 9/11 given that high fuel lasts for 6 years on average. You want to close airports too which wrecks schedules? No thanks.

There are a number of airports that historically closed during this time frame... you may not like it, but that's part of the reality that happened  :-\

While likely true, the event you’re proposing is far more drawn out than 9/11 and thus unreasonably harsh.

Perhaps this could work on a “hard difficulty” game world where production lines are halved in rate, airplane costs are double, fuel cost is vastly variable at outstations, and crashes are a possibility.
